It also attempts to provide an accurate count based on standardized ﬁeldwork over a 4-year period along the coast between Palatupana and Puttalam, Sri Lanka. The authors name some examples of mischaracterized or misidentified species from previous studies and address the importance of clearly deﬁning the terms for mangroves.
